The project, sold at the Toronto Film Festival, is directed by Tommy Wirkola and also stars Willem Dafoe. In the film, Rapace plays identical twin sisters who have to pretend to be the same person in a post-apocalyptic world where families are only allowed to have one child.
“What Happened to Monday?” was produced by Raffaella De Laurentiis, Philippe Rousselet and Fabrice Gianfermi. Kerry Williamson and Max Botkin are co-writers and co-producers.
CAA packaged and sold the film.
Rapace is represented by CAA, Magnolia and Indio, while Wirkola is represented by CAA.
Buys have been scarce at this year’s Toronto Film Festival so far. On Monday, Natalie Portman‘s “Jackie” was acquired by Fox Searchlight, and on Tuesday, Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis‘ movie “Colossal” went to a mystery Chinese buyer.
Netflix purchases have also been considerably down from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where the streaming platform bought titles such as “Tallulah,” “Audie & Daisy” and “The Fundamentals of Caring.”
